Notes for the Path of Exile patch poe 3.9 patch notes are out. The brand new Conquerors part of the Atlas system, which will replace the previous Elder as well as Shaper impact, is nearly there. Alongside it, the brand newly-designed Atlas system, players are invited to participate in the brand new MetaMorph League. The new League mechanic is about using the brand-new Samples and Catalysts that players will utilize in conjunction with the brand new crafting system.

In the new crafting system players can interact with new MetaMorph bosses by using Samples obtained from bosses of other types that will increase the difficulty. Another element revolves around Catalysts. They are able to apply quality as well as additional modifiers for Rings, Amulets and Belts which add a new and important element for building.

The game’s base is getting many tweaks since POE 3.9 patch notes. The skills are that are changing, and so much change in them that it’s much easier to provide an overview of the abilities and define them as a whole. In all below are the top winners and losers from the Path of Exile’s poe 3.9 patch notes, according to the skills.
